One of the five World Championship matches on the card features reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes defending the gold against Yuya Wakamatsu.
Wakamatsu’s march to a title shot began with a loss.
The Japanese star dropped a match against Demetrious Johnson in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix in 2019, which served as a crucial learning experience for the then 24-year-old. Three years and five consecutive wins later, Wakamatsu is a clear threat to the reign of Moraes.
But Moraes is not content on resting on his laurels.
After knocking out Johnson in primetime in the U.S. last year, the Brazilian is finally getting his due. The American Top Team representative is getting the respect he should have gotten years ago, and he wants to build upon his legacy and continue his reign.
On the Grand Finale of ONE X, these two flyweight warriors will highlight one of the most exciting divisions in the game. Their paths may have been different to get to this moment, but they converge in Singapore for one of the night’s most intriguing bouts.
Amid a slew of martial arts action, the ONE Flyweight World Championship matchup is one that deserves all of your attention.
